We normally don’t care too much for cookies off the store shelves. We felt that they are simply loaded with too much sugar and trans fat. So we normally skip the cookies aisle during grocery shopping.
A friend at work introduced the Desiree Wafers from Hans Freitag last week to me. It was surprisingly very different from other wafers that I’ve tried. They were lights, crunchy and not too sweet. Both Arkensen and Nanzaro loves it.
We found the Desiree at the Big Crazy grocery store along No 3 in Richmond. Each bag of 400g costs $2.99.
Hans Freitag opened a small wafer factory in Germany just one year after the end of WWII, They specialize only in making cookies and wafers. Today the company is still family owned and their product range has now grown up to 50 types of cookies and wafers.
In the Desiree bag, there are about six different types of wafers. Some of them were chocolate coated while some were filled with chocolates. Others were simply vanilla creams.
